Amazon has U.S. rights.

ZeroZeroZero” was created by Stefano Sollima, who also directed two episodes, alongside Leonardo Fasoli and Mauricio Katz. The acquisition marks Studiocanal’s first pan-regional deal with HBO Europe.

“We’re very pleased to secure this new partnership with Field Day Productions as part of our ongoing strategy to work with the absolute best creative talent in the industry,” said All3Media’s Ceire Clark. “We will launch one of our most extensive and diverse factual programming portfolios at Mipcom, and collaborations with companies such as Field Day are the driving force behind ensuring we continue to be the go-to distributor for premium unscripted content.”

The company also announced new sales for long-running factual entertainment series “Worst Cooks in America,” which included a pan-territory renewal for Latin America with Discovery, covering Seasons 11-13. The show, which is produced by Optomen Productions for the Food Network in the U.S. and is currently in production on Seasons 15 and 16, also saw Canada’s Blue Ant pick up Seasons 13 and 14 for its T & E Channel. Israel’s Ananey took rights for Seasons 11 and 12; and Season 12 will air on food-themed channel 24Kitchen in the Netherlands.
